Thanks for the useful tips. I agree with the first post that even if the most effective and the best combination is used for any cleaning purpose if it is not used/handled properly then it would not yield the best results. In this particular case if the solution is not used with a clean and dry cloth it would lead to streaks.

The recipe you provided was very effective for the cleaning of glass window panes.I cleaned the windows in my home and they looked very clean.But another tip that I would like to add,is to wipe them with old news paper instead of a cloth.This will leave the windows sparkling clean

As vinegar is acid we have to face some kind of acidic smell but we can tackle all types of rug so never think about the smell.

Yes vinegar will be a wise option but here I found a new method to make a green cleaning solution. Take a Jar, orange peels and Vinegar. Filled Jar with orange peels and vinegar. Leave Jar to be closed for 2-3 days and your solution will be ready. Put that liquid into spray bottle and that's it.

Thank for sharing such a great tips for healthier life and clean house! These homemade tips are working great for cleaning window. Cleaning with vinegar is the best all-purpose household cleaner that can even remove the tough spot developed on stovetop while cooking.

Cleaning windows with vinegar

When cleaning windows I use distilled white vinegar. I ad a cup or 2 of the vinegar to a gallon of hot water.

I first clean windows with 100% cotton terry towels damp with the vinegar water. I then use a squeegee to wipe the vinegar water off the windows then use a dry terry towel to get the vinegar water off the windows that the squeegee doesn't get like in the corners. Sometimes the rags leave white streaks on the windows. I think this is because I hadn't rinsed the cleanings rags twice after I had washed them. I wash rags with bleach and detergent in hot water.

I would like to note that the best time to clean windows is on a dry day in the higher 60's/lower 70's. You don't want the temperature to be too hot. Otherwise, the sun will dry the vinegar on the windows faster than you can squeegee it off.

I hope I helped.

In 15 years I've never asked this question but..... WHY would anyone want to clean ANYTHING with smelly vinegar? There are a thousand other things you could use so WHY vinegar?

Don't say it's cheaper than my window cleaner. I can make a 16oz bottle for less than a penny. Don't say it's cheaper than just plain ol' water.... I'd use water light years before I'd use vinegar. I'm sure there are other window cleaners that cost the same amount or less than vinegar..... so WHY use the smelly stuff?

In 35+ years I have only used dish soap for the window cleaning and it works great.

The only time I deviated was for some hard water spots that needed something acidic.

Vinegar is acidic,but it sure does stink.

I would keep a little hard water spot remover on hand for things like well water.

The offices and other corporate sectors will have to hire a cleaning company that offer Commercial cleaning services. Choosing professional cleaners is challenging as there are several companies that offer these services.

Great article! I liked your all ideas and tips you have introduced. I absolutely love vinegar. It's cheap, versatile, Eco friendly and incredibly effective. I use it to clean virtually everything including windows. Vinegar is an excellent cleaner that is economical and contains no toxic chemicals or preservatives and it's not harmful to you or the environment. It leaves no residue, so it dries "cleanly." This means you do not have the rinse the window with water after washing.

Yes, cleaning windows with vinegar and water is the best way as vinegar is considered as a natural ingredient and perfectly safe if ingested or inhaled directly. In fact, its versatility is only expanded by its potential in culinary applications. Learning the process to clean windows with vinegar is a simple project which requires little time and only a few supplies.

1.Prepare the area around the windows for cleaning.
2.Fill a small spray bottle with a mixture of vinegar and water.
3.Spray the window's surface with the vinegar and water mixture.
4.Rub the window's entire surface with a cloth to work the vinegar in.
5.Dry the window's entire surface.
